Nightlife In Mallorca

Where To Have Fun?




Palma de Mallorca is one of the most beautiful, cosmopolitan and interesting cities in the world, during the day and specially at night.

The club scene is small but improving here and there are several discos, bars and pubs which have an international flair; many of them are located on the famous “Paseo Maritimo” or around the historic Palma “Cathedral”.

Another area where you can find several fancy bars and pubs is Sa Llotja.

There is also a good selection of clubs, restaurants and lively bars in the “El Terreno” district, however, keep in mind that this is the centre of the gay and lesbian community in Palma.

People in Palma start to go out around 10.00pm and bars/clubs stay open until 3 or 4am; however, late night drinking and dancing goes on in thePasseig Maritim where discobares or “discotecas” stay open until 5 or 6am.

Also, throughout the year, you’ll find here a full programme of concerts, exhibitions, festivals and theatre productions.




Cafe Bar Barcelona

The Cafe Bar Barcelona is situated in the Carrer del Apuntadors. It’s located in Palma’s most lively nightlife neighbourhood, La Lonja.

La Bóveda

La Bóveda is a typical spanish tavern with unique furniture, with long, wide windows and wine stacked high along the back wall. If you don’t want to queue to get in, it’s better to come early.

This is the busiest and most cosmopolitan disco in Majorca. The cover charge of 12€ ($16) includes your first drink and allows you to have fun until 7am.

How to be part of the Festival

The best way to stay in touch with what’s happening is to sign up to our email newsletter called The Fix. We send it out once a month and will let you know all about deadlines, the registration process, applying to be part of the Fringe Hub and so much more. During the festival The Fix goes out more often and is choc-a-block with all things Fringe.

For those of you just itching to get started on your show for 2015 – and we do recommend you start thinking about it sooner rather than later – here is a very rough guide to the process:

Venue option A:

You can apply to be programmed into a venue at the Festival Hub in Nashville, Tennesee.

Expressions of Interest for the 2014 Festival Hub program are now closed.

  • Venue option B: Source your own venue.
  • Fringe has collated a list of potential venues, which is a great place to start. Of course you can source a venue anywhere; it does not have to be from this list. Don’t hesitate to contact USA CMA Music Opry for advice on which venues to approach for your event or Opry schedule 2014.

Please note that the relationship with the venue is between artist / producer and the venue, not USA CMA. It is highly recommended that you get confirmation of your agreement from your venue in writing. Download a sample contract here (this is provided as a guide only to help confirm your venue relationship). There are many resources available to artists searching for a suitable venue, one useful website is Creative Spaces.

2. Register online

Registrations for the 2014 Nashville, Tennessee Festival will open in early May 2015.
Once registrations have opened, you can create a login on our registration site (currently disabled as registrations are not open at this time) and fill in all the details about you and your show or event.

3. Sign on the dotted line

Once all the registration details are complete you need to pop into the office (special arrangements can be made if you are not based in USA) so that you can sign the Participants Agreement.

4. Cough up the cash

In 2014 the Artist Registration fees were:
Free events: $220
One-off (i.e. 1 date) ticketed events: $220
Ticketed Events: $300

We’ll confirm the registration fee for next year’s festival in early 2010.

Your registration fee covers a whole lot of administrative, ticketing and marketing costs, as well as ongoing support and advice, that are going to make doing a CMA music Grand Ole show an absolute dream for you and a fantastic experience for your audience.

Find out what you get for your registration fee on the Artist Resources page.

Mongolian Beef Stylee

Have you ever had Mongolian bbq before? Mongolian barbecue is a stir fried dish that was developed in Taiwanese restaurants in the 1970s. Meat and vegetables are cooked in large, round, solid iron griddles at temperatures of up to 300°C (572°F). Despite its name, the cuisine is not Mongolian, and is only very loosely related to barbecue.

Here’s how it’s being prepared… diners choose various ingredients from a buffet of thinly sliced raw meats (beef, pork, lamb, turkey, chicken, shrimp) and vegetables (cabbage, tofu, sliced onion, cilantro, broccoli, and mushrooms) and assemble them in a large bowl or on a plate. These ingredients are given to the griddle operator who adds the diner’s choice of sauce and transfers them to one section of the hot griddle. Oil and sometimes water may be added to ease cooking, and the ingredients are stirred occasionally.

I got some galunggong here people! I am looking forward to fry them tomorrow….lol! Galunggong is a very popular fish in the Philippines. It is usually pan-fried and served with white rice.

In English the galunggong fish has been known as the blue mackerel scad, round scad or as the shortfin scad, but these names have been applied to other fish of the Decapterus family as well.

I’ve been wanting to join the Food Trip Friday meme for a long time, but I kept forgetting. Now, I finally made it! So this is my first entry for this week. A Chinese cuisine. This is what I had for dinner last night. I was unable to cook dinner because I was busy preparing for my book report, so hubby and I went out and grabbed a food to go from our fave Chinese Resto nearby. Hubby had a lemon chicken and I had a broccoli beef and house fried rice.

Here’s a healthy and delicious refreshment complimentary from my daughter Akesha.

She did all the hard work and I did the presentation….:) To know more about the tangelo fruit, just head over to my main blog.

Here’s what you need to do:

-Wash all of your tangelos with water. This will ensure that you do not contaminate your juice with pesticides or dirt.

-Cut all of your fruit in half with a good kitchen knife.

-Press and squeeze each half of fruit on to the citrus juicer and turn left and right until all the juice and pulp has been squeeze out.

-Pour all of your juice into serving pitcher. Do not use the pulp and seeds, either throw them out or put into your compost container!

-Serve chilled in small juice glasses and use within 3-4 days.
